PAX 09: Destructoid community meetup plans!

3:20 PM on 09.03.2009 // Hamza CTZ Aziz
  @CTZ

PAX is less than 72 hours away now, and I know all of you coming this weekend are excited beyond belief. In fact, there’s a handful of people, including a bunch of the UK Dtoiders, in Seattle right now awaiting the big gaming party this weekend.

Thursday: At 5:00PM, Dtoider pendelton21 is getting this image made by our comic guy, Mikey, as a tattoo. Yes, really! He’ll be at Apocalypse Tattoo getting the ink.   

The Elephant & Castle, located right underneath the Red Lion Hotel, is the main rendezvous point for Destructoid all weekend long. If you're ever feeling lonely, just stop by the bar and you'll likely find people hanging outside (weather permitting). At around 7:00 PM, the group will be splitting up -- a bunch of people are going to a fancy dinner while the other group stays at the Elephant & Castle. 

At 9:00PM, both groups will be meeting up at Shorty’s on 2222 2nd Avenue, #A, and we'll all be staying until last call.

Friday: PAX TIME! Congrats to pheonix-blood, Dexter345, KyleGamgee, Toneman, LostCrichton, DJDuffy, The GHost, Tactix, Pangloss, pendelton21 and Kryptinite, who will all be taking on Mr. Destructoid duties as they walk the show floor from 10:00AM to 8:00PM.

From 12:00 to 1:00PM in the Unicorn Theatre is the “Hey Ash, Whatcha Filmin: How to make a moderately successful viral video series that confuses the hell out of people” panel. 

At 2:30 to 3:30PM in the Raven Theatre is the “How can we make online gaming communities suck less?” panel, hosted by Destructoid. DO NOT MISS THIS PANEL! Seriously, it’s going to be epic. Also, be sure to wear your Destructoid shirt at this time, as we’ll be taking the annual big group photo right after the panel. P.S. This is where you'll come to pick up your "Become" Dtoid shirt!

Then, in the evening, find Destructoid at the Elephant & Castle again at 10:00PM partying it up.

Saturday: Suit night! Various members are bringing their suits and dresses to dress up for the evening just because they want to. Plus, you’d want to look good while doing some karaoke at the The Crescent, wouldn’t you? Don't worry though, you DON'T have to dress up. You can show up in whatever you'd like to wear. Karaoke fun time will start at 9:00PM.

Sunday: Let’s drink the night away in style over at The Whisky Bar at 8:00PM. Plus, it’s near the water. 

Monday: Everyone cries, says their goodbyes and starts planning for PAX East and PAX Seattle 2010.

The plans can change on the fly, so you best be following on Twitter Hamza CTZ Aziz, Niero, Colette, Samit Sarkar, Nick Chester, Dale North, Jordan Jevore, Rey Gutierrez and Jonathan Ross so you can stay updated on all the plans throughout the weekend. 

See you all very soon!

Holy shit, App Store. The copyright infringement is real. I didn't buy it, because I'm scared it'll make my iPhone explode and because the comments say the game's a generic zombie title with fake and misleading screenshots.

Playing Halo 5: Guardians, got REALLY invested in this one match. It was intense from beginning to end and I was using A LOT of Power Weapons because it was so fun. We were literally seconds away from victory when the internet cut off. So disappointed. :(

Fuck it. Fuck Blighttown. Fuck it's poison blow dart campers. Fuck the mosquito freaks. Fuck the fire-breathing bitches. Fuck the lack of visibility. Fuck it's pitfalls. Fuck the fact that I'm going back after 5 minutes of self-loathing.

You know what the weirdest part about having selective hemophobia is? Getting freaked out by an anime like Elfen Lied but being 100% fine with shit like this.
